DC Comics Cinema Movies
It’s been over a year since we’ve seen the trailer for the upcoming Batman movie. DC Comics has already confirmed that we will indeed see a new trailer for this dark and gritty version of the Caped Crusader during DC FanDome. The film, due in theaters on March 22, 2022 (and later HBO Max) is co-written and directed by Matt Reeves. It also has a star cast, led by Robert Pattinson, playing a version of Batman who is very early in his crime-fighting career in Gotham City.
We also expect to see the first trailer for Black Adam. This 2019 Shazam movie spin-off stars Dwayne Johnson as the main character, an antihero who has the same powers as Shazam. The film will also introduce us for the first time to members of the Justice Society of America in a feature film. Black Adam is set to hit theaters on July 29, 2022.
We might also see the first trailer for this long-delayed film. Ezra Miller plays the Fastest Man Alive again (after playing him in Batman v Superman and Justice League). We know that the storyline follows some aspects of DC Comics Flashpoint’s now classic crossover event, where The Flash goes back in time to prevent his mother’s death and, in doing so, creates new timelines and alternate universes. Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck will both return as their versions of Batman in this film, which hits theaters on November 4, 2022.
